These are the consequences of diminished electronic usage

So, remember how I was hollering with love for Matthew Cordell’s HELLO! HELLO! last month? I have given this book to people, forced it on people, talked about how much I love it.

But you know what happens when you turn off electronic devices? I’ll tell you. Your kids have no idea how electronic devices work. Will this make them look like wingnuts in today’s society? Time will tell. My kids might look like wingnuts anyway.

Since we have been repeatedly reading Hello! Hello!:

  • Ramona asked me to help her turn on the Etch-a-Sketch.
  • The girls were pretending holiday cards were laptops. Ramona, while “looking for games” started to lick the “laptop.” Because I’m always tasting my computer and looking for games?
  • We got an old typewriter out of the basement.* The kids used the typewriter to write such messages as “we will take over email” and “twitter is now ours” (as well as “raw eggs are good” and “gummy bears are chasing me” so I’m not sure how much we can trust their world domination plans).

* We continue to give our children some kind of modified 1970s upbringing, between pencils and typewriters and our regular showings of Get Smart and Kung Fu. Plus I got them a vintage Spirograph for Christmas. I really hope we’re not harming them by withholding modern conveniences like Justin Bieber.

    Conveniences or annoyances? :) Ian was in gym the other day and the teacher was going to play a Justin Bieber song for some game they were playing (horrifying, I know!). Ian kindly informed the teacher that his mom thinks Justin Bieber sounds like a teenage girl. Don’t you love those moments when your kids rat you out in public?
